Can I chat with you or talk on phone? and allow you access to my computer?

Yes but I won't be available for remote access until tomorrow in the early afternoon (East coast time). Can we do it then?

Hi, something happened to my computer. I need to reboot it. It will probably take for about 15 minutes before i can contact you.
Expert:  Byron replied 1 year ago.

OK. Thanks for the update.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Byron, finally got running again. Do you have time now?
Expert:  Byron replied 1 year ago.

Yes. I need a couple of minutes to set up the connection. I'll then send a link with connection instructions.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
okay. do I need my email open?
Expert:  Byron replied 1 year ago.

Click the link below. When the page opens click I Agree and the download will begin.

Run or Open the file when asked. If Windows ask to make changes, Allow it.

Once the program has loaded we should be connected.
